Birth Year 1953

Peter Brown is one of the most popular and richest Singer who was born on July 11, 1953 in Blue Island, Blue Island, United States. Peter Brown (born July 11, 1953) is an American singer-songwriter and record producer. Brown was a popular performer in the late 1970s and early 1980s. His biggest success was the release of the LP in 1977 called A Fantasy Love Affair which produced the disco hits “Do Ya Wanna Get Funky with Me” and “Dance With Me”. He wrote, with Robert Rans, Madonna’s hit “Material Girl”.

The 1978 Record World Magazine Disco Awards named Brown Outstanding New Performer, Top New Male Vocalist and Top Male Vocalist. He was also nominated by NARAS (The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) in 1978 for a Grammy Award for best R&B Vocal Performance for the song “Dance With Me”. “Dance With Me” also included a guest vocal performance by Betty Wright. Also in 1978, Brown’s single “Crank It Up” peaked in the Billboard Disco Chart at


Henry Stone and everyone at TK Records really liked the augmented version, so Brown and Stone made the album deal and settled on a six-month deadline to write new material and record the album. Brown also photographed the album’s somewhat controversial cover and revealed, in a 1978 interview in Rolling Stone, that he had created the cover’s nude model out of cardboard, sheer fabric and ribbons.

In the late 1980s, a severe case of tinnitus prompted Brown to quit the music business in an attempt to preserve his damaged hearing. He began a design company which headed the award-winning redesign of the Chicago Board Options Exchange Internet site, among other wide-ranging design and architectural projects.

His first professional performance came on the American Bandstand television show, hosted by Dick Clark. That year, Brown also took part in the filming of a television special to promote the upcoming movie Foul Play with Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase. He also filmed a segment for the television show 60 Minutes showing the process of how a song is actually recorded in the recording studio. Later years saw him performing on the Mike Douglas Show, American Bandstand and as a presenter on the American Music Awards. On tour in 1978, Brown and his band (now with additional members Keith Anderson, drums, Joe Guzzo, guitar, Mike Hillinger, keyboards and Wildflower, background vocals) played venues as diverse as New York’s The Bottom Line and Madison Square Garden.
